    Play with the magnetic poetry. Tables are spaced out far enough for privacy but still feel cozy. This is probably a popular date night spot.

    Nice experience from waiting for a table to leaving. Cocktails were A+. Ask for the garlic stretch bread AND the famous hot tomato oil if you're torn. Pastas were kind of drowned in sauce, but tasty.

    Wicked Meatball Riggies is a def' suggestion IF u like spicy. The bread; room-temp and stale. Seated in worst spot, despite being almost empty. Salad was one of my best.

    For vegans, they make a mean portobello. You can add that to a pasta. With a side of broccoli. The waiters know vegans. Your options are very limited. Great drinks, decor and atmosphere though.
  • Christopher W.
